Teeth Cleaning St. John

Teeth Cleaning is an Integral Part of a Healthy Smile.


Brushing and Flossing are an essential part of maintaining the quality of your smile and your oral health. However, you can give your smile more. Twice yearly cleanings can help ensure that your smile and your oral health are fully taken care of.

Teeth Cleaning St. John – Dentist St. John

During a twice-yearly check-up, patients receive a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, tongue, jaw, and neck. Our dentistry in St. John will check your teeth to make sure they are free of cavities and other abnormalities. As we examine your gums, we’ll be able to detect whether any disease is present, or if your oral health needs other procedures or prescriptions. We’ll also check to see if TMJ is developing, or if any other ailments could arise from your joints, or glands concerning your oral health. If necessary, Dr. Cutrona may recommend additional X-rays, an oral cancer screening, or a further periodontal inspection.

One of our professional and knowledgeable dental hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning. Professional cleanings are recommended to be given twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. A professional cleaning supplements the oral hygiene you maintain at home.

The dentist or hygienist will use scalers, curets, and in some cases ultrasonic scalers to thoroughly clean the entire surface of each tooth, including the portion below the gum line. Once the teeth have been cleaned, the dentist or hygienist will gently polish each tooth using toothpaste or a combination of baking soda and water. Tooth polishing is commonly one of the final steps in a professional dental cleaning. To polish the teeth, a dentist or hygienist will use a rubber cup-shaped instrument and an abrasive toothpaste or a mixture of baking soda and water to make teeth appear shiny and smooth. The last step in a thorough dental cleaning is a protective fluoride treatment.
